Lake County Transportation Updates

Open Enrollment for LCDOT Adopt-A-Highway Program


August 15, 2019

The Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) is currently looking for volunteers to help pick up litter and debris along Lake County highways and bike paths. Volunteers adopt a section of a county highway and commit to cleaning it twice a year. LCDOT provides the equipment (safety vests and bags), we just need you to provide the manpower (or kid power)! When your cleanup is done, LCDOT will collect your garbage bags and recycling bags from the side of the road. Learn more

An Adopt-A-Highway group should have at least eight to ten people to help with the workload, but you can have as many as you like. Participants must be ten or older, and we need parental supervision for anyone under 18. Your group might be family, friends, neighbors, co-workers or any other environmentally friendly minded people you know.  

New Sections Are Available!

There may be a section of county highway or bike path in need near you. Several sections that haven't been available for years, have recently opened up. Please take a look at the available sections, fill out an application, and join us! Applications need to be in by Friday, August 30.
